      Sweet Potato Balls Recipe

      2 C. mashed sweet potatoes
      2/3 C. firmly packed brown sugar
      1/8 t.

      grated nutmeg
      1 t. grated orange peel
      4 to 6 T. orange juice
      8 large marshmallows
      2 C.

      flaked coconut

      Use fresh cooked or drained canned sweet potatoes. Add brown sugar, nutmeg, orange peel and juice to mashed potatoes. Mix well.

      Shape 1/2 cup mixture around a marshmallow; roll in coconut. Place potato balls in a buttered baking dish and bake at 350°F. for 20 minutes or until hot.

      Makes 8 balls.

      The balls may also be rolled in corn flakes rather than coconut if someone in the family doesn’t care for coconut. This is a great do-ahead recipe. Just remember not to cook them too long or the marshmallow will begin to run out.
